Is there anyway to listen to these bootlegs while I am not on my computer. Such as if I am using my iPod? thanks.

And once you have the show(s) loaded into iTunes, be sure to check the function that allows you to set the whole show to "Gapless Playback". This feature will eliminate the dead spots between tracks and allow for uninterrupted music: simply select all the tracks in one show, right click the mouse, select "Get Info", in the lower right of the box click on "Gapless Album" so that the "Yes" box is checked and then just hit "OK". The process can take a few minutes, but it is well worth it.

Once you have downloaded an AUD recording and saved it on your computer, simply open iTunes, choose File > Add Folder to Library, and import the music the same way that you import any other files. The VBR (variable bit rate) downloads usually sound better than the 64K files.

BTW, I believe that the term "bootlegs" generally refers to recordings made and sold for a profit, illegally (without the band's permission). What we have here, in contrast, is recordings that the band allows to be shared (AUDs) or played online (SBDs) for free. It's all legal and above-board, whereas "bootleg" usually implies a scam of some sort by unscrupulous piraters of the music.

Something else you may want to look into is www.rockbox.org
It's an opensource software for mp3 players which allows you to load and play Flac/Shrtn files as is without conversion. It supports other lossless file formats as well.

Rockbox is the way to go.You can just drag and drop the shn/flac files into the player w/o messing w/iTunes.

So can you download all shows and put them on your iPod or just the downloadable ones, which excludes the concerts only available to stream.
